I really like the way Paul Poast goes about coding and discussing his coding. Poast’s (2011) study illustrates the point that the absence of systematic, reliable data on failed negotiations is an obstacle not easily overcome. Poast (2011) addresses this problem for one narrow sub-issue area: military alliances. In his context, he can rely on decades of archival research already conducted by historians and draw on a variety of published diplomatic histories to obtain information on members of the population of near-misses.
